Russia in a position to destroy NATO’s "anti-missile shield"


According to the German daily Bild, Russia has supposedly deployed a dozen Inskander-M type missile batteries in Kaliningrad, an enclave inside the European Union.

With an approximate 500 kilometer range, but of very high precision, these missiles – which are not shot from silos, but by six-truck mobile units – are capable of destroying part of the anti-missile shield device installed by NATO in the heart of Europe. According to Bild, they could also hit Berlin, 527 kilometers away.
